Scripture Reading, and Prayers – Psalm / Salmo 8

M: O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your Name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger.

C: When we look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?

M: Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field, the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas.

C: O LORD, our Lord, how majestic is your Name in all the earth!

M: Oh Señor, soberano nuestro, ¡qué imponente es tu nombre en toda la tierra! ¡Has puesto tu gloria sobre los cielos! Por causa de tus adversarios has hecho que brote la alabanza de labios de los pequeñitos y de los niños de pecho, para silenciar al enemigo y al rebelde.

C: Cuando contemplo tus cielos, obra de tus dedos, la luna y las estrellas que allí fijaste, me pregunto: «¿Qué es el hombre, para que en él pienses? ¿Qué es el hijo del hombre, para que lo tomes en cuenta?»

M: Pues lo hiciste poco menos que un dios, y lo coronaste de gloria y de honra: lo entronizaste sobre la obra de tus manos, todo lo sometiste a su dominio; todas las ovejas, todos los bueyes, todos los animales del campo, las aves del cielo, los peces del mar, y todo lo que surca los senderos del mar.

C: Oh Señor, soberano nuestro, ¡qué imponente es tu nombre en toda la tierra!

Lord’s Prayer / El Padre Nuestro

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.

Your kingdom come, your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For yours is the kingdom
and the power and the glory forever.

Padre nuestro que estás en el cielo,
santificado sea tu nombre.
Venga tu reino; Hágase tu voluntad,
como en el cielo, así también en la tierra.
El pan nuestro de cada día, dánoslo hoy.
Y perdónanos nuestras deudas,
como también nosotros perdonamos a nuestros deudores.
Y no nos metas en tentación,
mas líbranos del mal;
porque tuyo es el reino,
y el poder, y la gloria, por todos los siglos.

– O God Beyond All Praising

Confession of Sins | God Forgives His Church

Minister: Brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus, let us draw near and humbly confess our sins to God. (Be seated)

Ministro:  Hermanos, tenemos plena libertad para entrar en el Lugar Santísimo, mediante la sangre de Jesús, entonces déjenos acercarnos para confesar nuestros pecados a Dios. (Sentados)

C: O God, we acknowledge our many trespasses and sins, and ask you to show us mercy in our time of need. Grant that all of us who are baptized into the Name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, from the least to the greatest, may bear your Holy Name faithfully and reverently both in this life and the life to come. We ask these things through Christ our Mediator. Amen

C: Oh Dios, reconocemos nuestras muchas faltas y pecados, y te pedimos que nos muestres misericordia en este momento de necesidad. Concede que todos los que hemos sido bautizados en el Nombre del Padre, del Hijo y del Espíritu Santo, desde el más pequeño hasta el más grande, podamos llevar tu Santo Nombre con fidelidad y reverencia, tanto en esta vida como en la venidera. Te lo pedimos por medio de Cristo nuestro Mediador. Amén

Assurance of Pardon / Seguridad de Perdón – 

M: May almighty God, who sent his Son into the world to save sinners, bring you his pardon and peace by his Spirit, now and for ever. Amen.

M: Que el Dios omnipotente, que envió a su Hijo al mundo para salvar a los pecadores,
te entregue su perdón y paz por medio de su Espíritu, ahora y para siempre. Amén.

Consecration | God Equips His Church

Scripture Reading and Prayer – Deuteronomy 5:11; 6:4-9

You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Collect: Almighty and everlasting God, you have given to us your servants grace, by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity, and in the power of your divine Majesty to worship the Unity: Keep us steadfast in this faith and worship, and bring us at last to see you in your one and eternal glory, O Father; who with the Son and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

Sermon: The Holy Trinity and You — 1 Peter 1:1-2

Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who are elect exiles of the Dispersion… according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in the sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and for sprinkling with his blood: May grace and peace be multiplied to you. 

Westminster Confession of Faith on the Holy Trinity (Español)

In the unity of the Godhead there be three persons, of one substance, power, and eternity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. The Father is of none, neither begotten nor proceeding; the Son is eternally begotten of the Father; the Holy Ghost eternally proceeding from the Father and the Son. (II.3)

Larger Catechism

Q 11. How doth it appear that the Son and the Holy Ghost are God equal with the Father?
A. The Scriptures manifest that the Son and the Holy Ghost are God equal with the Father, ascribing unto them such names, attributes, works, and worship, as are proper to God only.

Isa. 6:3, 5, 8; John 12:41; Acts 28:25; 1 John 5:20; Acts 5:3-4; John 1:1; Isa. 9:6; John 2:24-25; 1 Cor. 2:10-11; Col. 1:16; Gen. 1:2; Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14.

Pastoral Prayer

–  O God of our Salvation **

Confession of Faith

Congregation Reads – The Nicene Creed

We believe in one God,
the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth,
and of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God,
begotten of the Father before all worlds;
God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God;
begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father,
by whom all things were made.
Who, for us men and for our salvation, came down from heaven,
and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary,
and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate;
He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again,
according to the Scriptures;
and ascended into heaven, and sits on the right hand of the Father;
and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead;
whose kingdom shall have no end.
And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life;
who proceeds from the Father and the Son;
who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified;
who spoke by the prophets.
And we believe one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins;
and we look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen

– How Deep the Father’s Love

Communion | God Nourishes His Church

If you have been baptized into Christ, and trust Him as your only hope for Salvation, and are a member in good standing at any Christian church, then you are invited to eat and drink with God’s family at Christ’s invitation.

Si Ud ha sido bautizado en Cristo y confia en él como su unica esperanza para salvacion, y es miembro sano en una iglesia Cristiana, Ud esta invitado a comer y beber con la familia de Dios a la invitación de Cristo.

Words of Institution — 1 Cor. 11:23-26

Scripture Reading and Prayer /  Lectura y Oración — 1 Corinthians 10:16, 17, 24, 31

Minister:  The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break, is it not a participation in the body of Christ? Because there is one bread, we who are many are one body, for we all partake of the one breadLet no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbor…So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

Ministro:  Esa copa de bendición por la cual damos gracias, ¿no significa que entramos en comunión con la sangre de Cristo? Ese pan que partimos, ¿no significa que entramos en comunión con el cuerpo de Cristo? Hay un solo pan del cual todos participamos; por eso, aunque somos muchos, formamos un solo cuerpoQue nadie busque sus propios intereses sino los de su prójimo…Ya sea que coman o beban o hagan cualquier otra cosa, háganlo todo para la gloria de Dios.

Minister: O merciful Lord, we do not presume to come to your Table, trusting in our own righteousness, but in your manifold and great mercies. We are not worthy so much as to gather up the crumbs under your Table. But you are merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness: Grant us therefore, gracious Lord, so to eat the flesh of your beloved Son Jesus Christ, and to drink his blood, that our sinful bodies may be made clean by his Body, and our souls washed through his most precious Blood, and that we may evermore dwell in him, and he in us. Amen. (Prayer of Humble Access / adapted by JMT)

Minister: Oh Señor misericordioso, nosotros no nos atrevemos a venir a tu Mesa, confiando en nuestra rectitud ni justicia, sino en tus muchas y grandes misericordias. No somos dignos ni aún de recoger las migajas debajo de tu Mesa. Mas Tú eres clemente y compasivo, lento para la ira y grande en amor y fidelidad: concédenos, Señor, por tu gracia, que de tal modo comamos la carne de tu amado Hijo Jesucristo, y bebamos su sangre, que nuestros cuerpos pecadores sean limpios por su Cuerpo, y nuestras almas lavadas por su preciosa Sangre; y que siempre vivamos en El, y El en nosotros. Amén


Bread and Wine Served from the Table

As often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. Thanks be to God for his inexpressible gift.

Cada vez que comen este pan y beben de esta copa, proclaman la muerte del Señor hasta que él venga. Gracias a Dios por su don ineffable.

Offerings and Thanksgiving / Ofrendas e Acción de Gracias – Psalm / Salmo 116

All:  What shall I render to the Lord
for all his benefits to me?
I will lift up the cup of salvation
and call on the name of the Lord,
I will pay my vows to the Lord
in the presence of all his people.
I will offer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving
and call on the name of the Lord.

Todos:  ¿Cómo puedo pagarle al Señor
por tanta bondad que me ha mostrado?
¡Tan solo brindando con la copa de salvación
e invocando el nombre del Señor!
¡Tan solo cumpliendo mis promesas al Señor
en presencia de todo su pueblo!
Te ofreceré un sacrificio de gratitud
e invocaré, Señor, tu nombre.

COMMISSION | God Sends His Church

Missional Benediction / Bendición Misional – 1 Peter / Pedro 5:6-11

Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Humíllense bajo la poderosa mano de Dios, para que él los exalte a su debido tiempo. Depositen en él toda ansiedad, porque él cuida de ustedes. Practiquen el dominio propio y manténganse alerta. Su enemigo el diablo ronda como león rugiente, buscando a quién devorar. Resístanlo, manteniéndose firmes en la fe, sabiendo que sus hermanos en todo el mundo están soportando la misma clase de sufrimientos. Y, después de que ustedes hayan sufrido un poco de tiempo, Dios mismo, el Dios de toda gracia que los llamó a su gloria eterna en Cristo, los restaurará y los hará fuertes, firmes y estables. A él sea el poder por los siglos de los siglos. Amén.

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

Que la gracia del Señor Jesucristo, el amor de Dios, y la comunión del Espíritu Santo sean con todos ustedes. Amén.
